Alcaraz: "Nadal has a thousand lives, there is a player for a while"

The young man from Murcia, Carlos Alcaraz Garfia, the emerging value of national and world tennis, has valued this Monday what Rafa Nadal has done at Roland Garros and in his extensive and successful career and has come to say that he has "thousand lives" and that "there is a player for a while" with the Majorcan, who yesterday in Paris, at 36 years old, added his fourteenth title and twenty-second Grand Slam.

Alcaraz, 19 years old and who this Monday appears seventh in the world ranking -he has dropped one position- has made these statements at the inauguration of a graffiti that has been dedicated to him in El Palmar, his town, an act in which he has been acclaimed. "It is inexplicable all the affection I receive and it is something wonderful"has pointed.

After said inauguration, the Murcian has referred to the final that Nadal won this Sunday by 6-3, 6-3 and 6-0 against the Norwegian Casper Ruud.

"Rafa has a thousand lives and there is Nadal for a while. At the age of 19, she has already won Roland Garros and has already won 14 titles in Paris. He, with the age that I am now, had already won the first one and, therefore, I am a little late"he commented among the laughter of those present, while highlighting "the fight and surrender" from the Balearic Islands whose last final he followed closely.

In addition, he has had words for the German Alexander Zverev, who eliminated him in the quarterfinals, and then fell injured in the semifinals precisely against Nadal, forcing him to leave.

"He was being a great game and I was shocked to see on television the way he sprained his ankle. I hope he comes back soon because tennis needs Zverev"has declared.

Already focused on his next commitments, he has commented that he thinks about the Wimbledon grass.

"I am focused on that tournament and to this day I still doubt if I will be in Queens to prepare it or go directly to the Grand Slam"has indicated and has recognized that his work plan will not vary much although he will begin to exercise "earlier to avoid the heat".

In Paris, Alcaraz matched his cap at a "major" and he hopes to improve himself in the next opportunities that come his way.

"It is the second time that I reach the quarterfinals in a Grand Slam tournament and the first time that I was able to finish this round and playing at a good level. "has recognized by recalling that in the 2021 United States Open he also won four matches in the final draw to fall in the fifth against the Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime, retiring due to injury.

"Next time I will have more experience and I hope that this will help me not to make the mistakes I had at this Roland Garros"has apostilled.
